“Would Stay Again”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2005

My wife and I stayed at this motel on June 28, 2005. The price of $97.12 for a standard room was competitive for the area. The front desk staff (2 persons) were friendly and helpful. The motel has been recently renovated. Room was clean and nicely furnished. The balcony rail was flimsy. The worst part about this 30 year plus old motel is the initial approach to the building. It looks dismal because the inconvenient parking lot is behind two restaurants with the garbage cans out back with related smells. The motel staff has done what they can to upgrade the landscaping. Most of the clientel of this motel seemed to be construction workers. The elevator floor in the east tower needs an upgrade to replace the flooring.

After searching many hotels in this area, it came down to this and the Ramda across the river. And boy am I glad I chose this one. It was super clean and the view was beautiful. There's a dock in front of the hotel that boats sail up to and have dinner at the wonderful restaurant downstairs. The restaurant was very family oriented and had great prices. The housekeepers were extremely friendly and made us feel like family. The pool was gorgeous and very clean. Every morning the polite staff was cleaning the pool and grounds. We will definitely stay here again if ever in Fort Myers. Very Nice hotel.

We just came back from a 4 day vacation in Fort Myers, Florida, and we where very pleased with this property. When we booked the hotel, we chose one very close to City of Palms Stadium, where the Red Sox have their spring training center -- we had tickets to go see them 4/4/05. The hotel is very close to the stadium, maybe one mile away. Great Location. Great check in at Front desk, very friendly staff. Rooms are big, looks like they have been updated recently, all rooms face the beautiful Caloosahatchee River with nice size balconies. The pool was a hit with my kids, they where in it alot!!! Very warm -- it was heated. The restaurant on the premises was good. You can order drinks poolside. Again, staff very friendly -- it was easy to order chicken nuggets/french fries for my 2 kids and it came out to $10. We did have breakfast at the IHOP. It was good. There is another restaurant close to the hotel, a smokehouse, you want to avoid. Not good at all! -- if we every get back to Fort Myers to see our great Red Sox Team -- you better believe we will stay at the BestWestern Fort Myers Waterfront!!!!

We stayed at the Best Western Waterfront for 2 nights in November 2004. One of the few hotels in this prize-range where the heated pool is REALLY warm. Friendly staff and spacious and clean room (114), with even from the 1st floor a beautiful view on the river - with a very difficult name. Very nice grill bar on the premises, as well as a IHOP.

This hotel is overpriced, shabby and dated. The balcony was dirty and the room could have been cleaner. Our room overlooked the roof of the restaurant which obscured the view of the water. We were treated to cooking smells and noise. I would suggest that anyone that has to stay here ensures they get a room away from the restaurant. The staff were not helpfull at all. As for breakfast we did not stay to find out what it was like. We had intended to stay for two nights but decided to leave after the first night.

Stayed here for a couple of days leading up to my wedding, and most of my family stayed here as well. They did a good job orf taking care of our large group - once they knew that someone was with the wedding party they made their best effort to put them in the same building.
Rooms are huge and well appointed. The water view is a plus. There's a good bar with a long happy hour that is between the two buildings. If you're on the first floor, make sure you're not in the rooms that are closest to the side of the bar, or else you'll get the bar noise (and have no water view because the bar's patio will be in front of your room). I'd stay here again.
